I saw the movie before finding this book. I’m glad I saw the movie first, because if I had read the book first, I would have been saying, “That never happened!” throughout the entire film. LOL

I recommend the book.

Really really interesting. Can’t wait to see the movie. The new TV series about patriotic spies during the American Revolution–called “TURN” mentioned that slavery was outlawed already in England by 1776. Where do you get all the wonderful info you post? I think some of the greatest stories evolve from the moral and societal conflicts that dictated plots for star-crossed lovers.

I love stories like this. Buried so deep in the annals of history it takes a gorgeous painting like this to open a channel. I will have to look into this film…the historian in me is very interested. Thanks Sharon!


What a marvelous story!
